Traveling CA 99 from Bakersfield to Modesto

I'm moving to Modesto from FL next week and we will be CA 99 around dinner time. What are some good places to stop for dinner on that route?

Lobster in in Concord or Manchester?

We're going to be taking a mini family vacation in Lincoln, NH. On the way back to Manchester my husband really wanted to stop and get a really tasty lobster. Any suggestions?

Really, really, really good chicken wings?

Bru's room is one of my favorites for sure - the secret to the "grilled" wings is that they are fried first, then grilled. The best of both worlds :)

I also really like Wilton Wings (with regular hot buffalo sauce), they are cooked to perfection.

Official Miami Spice 2009 Thread

I went to Wish on Friday for dinner. Corn Soup = AMAZING! But Snapper and Brownie left alot to be desired. Below is the link to my lengthy review

Miami Spice 2009

The menus are starting to come out! I made reservations for Wish for next week, but am really looking forward to alot of other places. What restaurants are you planning on going too??

Rocco's Tacos????

The boca location is going to be it's 2nd location. The one on Clematis is always packed! Most of the food I've had there is really good. The only think that I haven't been crazy about was the ground beef. It was more Cuban style....not really what I was expecting from a Mexican restaurant.

Best Burger in Ft. Lauderdale?

Bill's Filling Station has amazing burgers! Just went there for the first time a couple months ago...IMO, the best I've had in Fort Lauderdale.

Fort Lauderdale Sushi

The freshest sushi I have had is at Sozo Sushi in Wilton Manors. It's a very small place, with literally 2 tables and about 8 barstools. But the sushi is amazing!!

Set Menus or Specials with Great Value for Money

Anyone know of any good pre-fixe deals for dinner??

Lunch after Abita Brewery tour

Hi there! I'm heading down to NOLA next week and 1 day we're gonna be doing the Abita tour in Covington. We're looking for a great local place to eat near there after our tour. Any recommendations??

I'm just going to the Grand Tasting, but some of the other ones look great. I wish I had time to fit more in!

I've never been before and I'm very excited! My friends and I are going to the Grand Tasting. I haven't received my tickets either. I e-mailed them almost 2 weeks ago and they said they would be mailing "shortly".

Sunday Brunch in Singer Island - Jupiter

Hey Chowhounds!

Any recommendations for a great Waterfront Restaurant that has a Sunday Brunch menu? I'm looking for some good food, but not too pricey.

1st Time at Michy's

I'm going to dinner to Michy's tonight. It's my first time going, I can't believe it took me so long!

Any must haves on the menu??

Ft. Laud./Oakland Park rec request

Primanti Bros on Oakland has good pizza and the yummy french fry sandwiches.

Spanky's, also on Oakland, has really good cheesesteaks.

Philly Cheesesteak, SoFla

I'm a huge fan of Spanky's on Oakland Park too. It's always fresh and the portions are big.

Easter Brunch Orlando

Any good recommendations for Easter Brunch in Orlando? Last year we went to the Gaylord Palms, which was very good, but we're just looking to try something new.

2 for 1 tix South beach food & wine

Here is the ticket page... Some of the events that aren't sold out are half price, but not all of them. I got tickets for a Wine Spectator Seminar, $100 instead of $200. It's a great deal!

Dive bar loving foodies in West Palm Beach for a week. Where to eat?

Good picks! That was exactly what I was going to recommend. Brass Ring has great burgers and wings. One of my faves is Captain Charlie's Reef Grill...when you go there, make sure to just get a bunch of appetizers to share. They also have the best creme brulee!

Christmas Day dinner for family

We're going to be there for Christmas and opted for the brunch at 5 Fifty 5. It's only $40 for adults and has a menu that sounds great and it has something for everyone. They have an 11:30, 1:30, and 3:30 seating. Here is the link to the menu....

Commander's Palace Brunch

I think it's worth it for sure....if you're out late the night before, try to get reservations for the early afternoon instead of morning.

The service is impeccable, the food is great. Everyone has a choice of their own picks (maybe 5 or 6 in each, entree, dessert). I'm pretty sure you can't share. Plus they serve this amazing garlic bread. You definitely leave stuffed, but it's a great experience.

Recommendations for cooking classes in the city?

I visited New Orleans back in August, and went to the New Orleans School of Cooking, in the French Quarter. The class was about 2 1/2 hours, and the instructor was great! It was a lot of fun, very reasonabley priced, and the food was amazing. I still say it's the best gumbo I had during my stay there.

Dinner while visting west palm beach

I just had a very dissapointing experience at Forte! The food sounded way better on the menu than it looked. Our server was rude and didn't know the answer to several questions I had. We went on a Friday night and there were only 3 tables occupied. That place has to be on its way out.

7 nights/xmas week

I'm going on Christmas too! I've been looking, and Tujagues has a Christmas Day menu as well.

Since it's your 1st'll also want to make it to Acme Oyster House! Amazing oysters in a casual/fun atmosphere.

Steamed (not raw) oysters in Southeast Florida?

Spoto's Oyster Bar has locations in downton west palm and palm beach gardens. The oysters there are great! They usually have about 3 or so different types of oysters, and you can have them steamed or raw.

Ft. Lauderdale inexpensive cocktails or happy hour

I love going to the Mai Kai for happy hour. They have 2 for 1 drinks (I think from 4pm - 7pm?). They have awesome specialty drinks (I LOVE the Black Magic). The kitschy atmosphere is great. On wednesdays they even have free sushi.
